Having been initially trained at Kew Gardens, Rupert has been involved in various aspects of horticulture and landscaping all his working life and for the last 27 years has been developing and maintaining all the high class parks, gardens and open spaces within Mid Sussex District, where he held the post of Principal Landscape Manager. He is in his early sixties.

Rupert is now looking for new gardens to get involved in – whether through regular maintenance or assistance with developing and improving what’s there now.
